Breaking news out of Washington D.C. over allegations of improper conduct at the NLRB.
Today, the House Education and the Workforce Committee released National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) Inspector General (IG) David Berry’s report detailing findings of gross mismanagement in the NLRB’s administration of a mail ballot election. The report was given to the Committee after Chairwoman Virginia Foxx (R-NC) called on Berry to provide a report that could be released to the public.
Chairwoman Foxx made the following statement: “Having this report front and center for the American people is part of the Committee’s duty of accountability. There are serious mismanagement issues at the NLRB and it’s hurting the agency’s ability to perform its mission faithfully. Berry’s findings make two things certain: First, the Committee’s ongoing investigation into the NLRB is justified. Second, the Committee and IG Berry are rowing in the same direction to root out misconduct at the NLRB.”
